Great.

You show me your tailpipes, I'll show you my gearshift knob. I'm comfortable in sharing a hotel room to keep expenses down; work for you?

Well, for start, it won't feel like driving an underwhelming boat anymore

I actually have an underwhelming boat. They aren't alike at all.

I was kidding and the reference was to an exhausting thread here where poster complained that his F30 drove like "an underwhelming boat".

On a serious note, there was a noticeable difference in normal suspended E90 and E92 with stock sport suspension. I don't know if that is the case with F30 chassis. The difference was mainly in roll in the corner and dive under hard breaking. Unfortunately, the sport suspension for that generation was a very bad thing if you kept run-flat tires on the car.

I knew you were kidding

Thanks for the reply! I'm trying to educate myself. Even though I've driven cars for years I never knew if I had a four cylinder or a six cylinder or that there were different suspension systems. So I definitely appreciate the info.
